MiniDSP SHD - Unit is in great shape, and works perfectly. I've just decided to go in a different direction. Firmware and Volumio fully updated and ready to go. Fully transferrable Dirac Live license with a simple e-mail to MiniDSP.

$825 shipped and PayPal G&S.

miniDSP is proud to introduce the SHD (“Streaming High Definition”) digital audio processor incorporating Dirac Live®, the world’s premier room correction solution. A natural evolution and extension of our considerable experience with Dirac Live implementation, the miniDSP SHD heralds a new era in affordable yet powerful DSP-based network streamers.

The miniDSP SHD is a certified Roon Ready network player. Being Roon Ready means that miniDSP uses Roon streaming technology, for an incredible user interface, simple setup, rock-solid daily reliability, and the highest levels of audio performance, without compromise. The quad-core streaming processor in the SHD also runs Volumio, a popular open-source network streamer, providing web-based access to music files from sources as diverse as a USB stick to Internet Radio and Spotify/Tidal/Qobuz streaming.

The SHD has extensive connectivity options. Three digital inputs, two analog inputs and USB Audio enable the SHD to fit right into any modern audio system. The four-channel DSP-controlled outputs are available as single-ended (RCA) and balanced (XLR) analog as well as SPDIF digital.

In addition to Dirac Live, the miniDSP SHD includes a full suite of our powerful but user-friendly DSP audio tuning software - ten-band parametric EQ per channel, crossovers up to 48 dB/octave, compressor/limiter, and a flexible 2x4 matrix mixer — for powerful audio system tuning in applications ranging from subwoofer integration to a two-way active speaker.
